Buckets of sun, sand and sculpting

South Africa
The Hout Bay community got together to compete in an annual sand modeling competition. This year's theme was ‘Sights and Scenes of Hout Bay’.

Cape Town – Buckets and spades were the weapons of choice for an art competition in Cape Town that saw parents and children getting dirty for a good cause.

On Saturday, teachers, learners and the community gathered at Hout Bay beach, where they put on their creative caps and got to work sculpting sand models. 

Sea creatures happened to be a popular subject, with a smiling whale and turtle being made.

But it wasn't just about being the king of the sand castle. The local pre-primary school that coordinated the project said the annual event would raise funds to improve education in Hout Bay. 

Watch: Hout Bay residents get together to get creative about education for a community in Cape Town. This year's theme was ‘Sights and Scenes of Hout Bay’.
